Dream Team: Swansea dominate defence

Swansea v Leicester

Three Swans players earn call-ups to the highest-scoring XI of Gameweek 25, led by Liverpool's Sadio Mane

Swansea City's revival under Paul Clement continues to show promise for Fantasy Premier League managers, with three Swans defenders earning Dream Team call-ups for Gameweek 25.

Elsewhere, Arsenal’s top scorer earns an unrivalled seventh appearance but fails to stem the tide of sales as the Gunners sit out Gameweek 26. 

FPL Gameweek 25 Dream Team

Simon Mignolet (Liverpool) £4.7m
The Liverpool goalkeeper earns a Dream Team debut via a 2-0 home win over Tottenham Hotspur. Mignolet’s 15 recoveries and two saves helped the Reds to a first clean sheet in six attempts. 

Alfie Mawson (Swansea City) £4.5m
A third goal in six Gameweeks continued the centre-back's impressive output since Clement’s appointment. Earning a second Dream Team call-up, the 0.3%-owned Mawson helped the Swans to a first shutout since Gameweek 15 in the 2-0 home victory over Leicester City.

Martin Olsson (Swansea City) £4.5m
The attacking full-back netted a first Swans goal since arriving from Norwich City in the January transfer window. Similar to team-mate Mawson, he remains an overlooked option and sits in less than 1% of FPL squads.

Federico Fernandez (Swansea City) £4.5m
Having supplied the assist for Mawson’s opener against the Foxes, Fernandez is awarded a Dream Team debut. He has been an ever-present over the last six Gameweeks.

Ryan Bertrand (Southampton) £5.4m
A pair of assists in a 4-0 win at Sunderland helped the attacking full-back to a 14-point return, second only to Mawson among defenders. Bertrand has supplied three assists and two clean sheets in his last four appearances, but the Saints now miss Gameweek 26 due to their EFL Cup final meeting with Manchester United. 

Swansea City v Leicester City
Swansea's Alfie Mawson was the top-scoring FPL defender for Gameweek 25

Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) £11.8m
The Chilean extended his lead at the top of the overall standings to 36 points with a brace at home to Hull City. Sanchez has now earned a call-up to the Dream Team on seven occasions (more than any player) but is the most sold midfielder since the weekend deadline with the Gunners without a fixture in Gameweek 26.

Manuel Lanzini (West Ham) £6.3m
Returning to the Hammers’ teamsheet due to an injury to Andy Carroll (£6.3m), the Argentinian supplied a goal and assist in the 2-2 home draw with West Bromwich Albion. Owned by only 0.8% of FPL managers, Lanzini has produced two goals and three assists in his previous four Gameweek starts.

Sofiane Feghouli (West Ham) £5.0m
A Dream Team debutant, the winger has started five successive Gameweeks and has benefitted from the departure of former Hammers playmaker Dimitri Payet. A goal and assist at home to West Brom highlights his potential ahead of a schedule in which four of his next five Gameweeks score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR). 

Sunderland v Southampton
Manolo Gabbiadini is the most transferred-in FPL forward, despite having no fixture in Gameweek 26

Anthony Martial (Man Utd) £9.2m
Handed a first start in four Gameweeks, the Frenchman registered his biggest haul of the season in a 2-0 home win over Watford. A 12-point tally, courtesy of a goal and assist, suggests that he could be set to cement his place in Jose Mourinho's first XI. 

Sadio Mane (Liverpool) £9.2m
Two goals and maximum bonus points in Liverpool’s win over Spurs earned the Senegal international a 16-point haul as the Gameweek's top scorer. With 102,000+ transfers in ahead of the Reds’ trip to Leicester City, Mane is the current top transfer target.

Manolo Gabbiadini (Southampton) £6.5m
Two strikes at Sunderland took the Saints’ January signing to three goals in two appearances since arriving from Napoli. Gabbiadini has already received more transfers in (more than 62,000) than any forward since the weekend, yet misses Gameweek 26 along with Bertrand.
